The emotion machine : commonsense thinking, artificial intelligence, and the future of the human mind by Marvin Minsky( Book )

19 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 963 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In [this book, the author] shows why we should expand our ideas about thinking and how thinking itself might change in the future. [This book] explains how our minds work, how they progress from simple kinds of thought to more complex forms that enable us to reflect on ourselves -- what most people refer to as consciousness, or self-awareness. Unlike other broad theories of the mind, this book proceeds in a step-by-step fashion that draws on detailed and specific examples. It shows that thinking -- even higher-level thinking -- can be broken down into a series of specific actions. From emotional states to goals and attachments and on to consciousness and awareness of self, we can understand the process of thinking in all its intricacy. And once we understand thinking, we can build machines -- artificial intelligences -- that can assist with our thinking, machines that can follow the same thinking patterns that we follow and that can think as we do. These humanlike thinking machines would also be emotion machines -- just as we are.-Dust jacket

Pour Minsky le cerveau ne serait qu'une somme de composants imparfaits, chacun doté d'une fonction déterminée que l'on sait aujourd'hui localiser, détruire ou exciter. Chaque composant -- que Minsky appelle agent -- ne peut faire à lui seul qu'une chose simple, qui n'exige ni esprit ni pensée. Pourtant, lorsqu'ils sont reliés entre eux, tous ces composants du cerveau constituent une sorte de société; ce sont les relations complexes à l'intérieur de cette société qui forment ce que l'on appelle l'esprit

Inventive minds : Marvin Minsky on education by Marvin Minsky( )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marvin Minsky was a pioneering researcher in artificial intelligence whose work led to both theoretical and practical advances. His work was motivated not only by technological advancement but also by the desire to understand the workings of our own minds. Minsky's insights about the mind provide fresh perspectives on education and how children learn. This book collects for the first time six essays by Minsky on children, learning, and the potential of computers in school to enrich children's development. In these essays Minsky discusses the shortcomings of conventional education (particularly in mathematics) and considers alternative approaches; reflects on the role of mentors; describes higher-level strategies for thinking across domains; and suggests projects for children to pursue. Each essay is paired with commentary by one of Minsky's former colleagues or students, which identifies Minsky's key ideas and connects his writings to current research. Minsky once observed that in traditional teaching, "instead of promoting inventiveness, we focus on preventing mistakes." These essays offer Minsky's unique insights into how education can foster inventiveness
